9:09am
9:10am
9:11am
>> radar and satellite imagery in motion. we picked up a few clouds as far east of the bay. most of the clouds are still west of us fp front is in allegheny county. very limited with this. most of it's up in pennsylvania, new york state. so this front's going to go through -- i'm not going to guarantee it will go through dry, but any showers may be fairly insignificant when this thing approaches the bay. mite only amount to sprinkles or nothing where you are. you will notice a drop in temperatures.
9:12am
beautiful morning. 66 at the airport and the inner harbor. 78% the humidity. that doesn't tell the whole story. dew point's been down in the 50s. atmosphere's pretty dry. that makes it harder to squeeze any rain out of the atmosphere when it comes through. 29.85 the barometer continues to fall now as that front approaches. we have a southwest wind at six miles an hour. just encapsulizing the situation. temperature wise, we took a rise in temperatures last week. we hung up around 80 last week. here's today. down a little bit. still around 70, little warmer than that. we erase about 20 degrees in temperatures by tomorrow. then warmer cover immediately anyway. as far as readings are concerned. this morning we're doing all right. parkville 65. 69 edgewood. rock hall's up to 70 degrees. columbia 60. so we've taken all the 50s out of here. so really mild morning. radar satellite combination. few sprinkles around western
9:13am
maryland here, parts of pennsylvania. more significant rains are up in new york state. here's the front with that cold air coming in behind it, i mean, it's in the 40s in pittsburgh, 30s back in detroit and chicago. all up into minnesota. northern minnesota has some snow ton ground. big storm that went through there. so we're setting the stage to bring this colder air in. replace the mild stuff. you see those readings behind us. all the blue. there's the edge of the blue green line in western maryland now. 60s to 30s in only 600 miles or something like that. so our forecast today. 73 to 78. that high will be hit by midday or in the early afternoon. then we'll probably start losing some ground by late afternoon anyway. and the clouds will increase. this afternoon a shower. that may be an overstatement. only might be a sprinkle. winds come northwest about 10 to 20 miles an hour. future cast shows the front coming through 4:00 or so. maybe just east of us by then.
9:14am
disturbance south will pop some moisture our way sunday. rain chances are higher sunday. but the temperatures will be cooler. lot of clouds. so, sunday's not gonna be a very pleasant day. of course we have the o's/yankees game sunday evening. it looks like when that game starts around 6:00, we'll only be in the upper 40s. still could see lingering showers around the area at that time. more like football weather, i guess. our forecast, 76 today but only 56 tomorrow. subtract 20 degrees. by monday morning, 38 degrees. >> with those colder temperatures on the way, people across the nation are turning to their favorite fall drinks. faithful star bucks customers could be in for disappointment. wall street journal is reporting some starbucks stores are running low on the ingredients to make pumpkin spice lattes. we checked into this claim. >> on a blustery friday night in dallas -- >> the creammyness, the flavor, the robust. >> there isn't much that can come between valerie ingram and
9:15am
her pumpkin spice latte. >> i like it. >> the drink is a favorite among starbucks customers every year, but this year the brew stirred up some big buzz. according to an article in "wall street journal" so many people are wanting it, many stores are running out of the special sauce that gives the drink that spicy autumn flavor. >> i like it a lot. really and truly if they ran out, i would cry. >> the shortage has the twitter universe up in arms, leaving some shouting fall is ruined! there's a pumpkin latte shortage at starbucks. while some java lovers say not having that pumpkin spice is worse than say drinking decalf. others say you got to remember, it's just coffee. it >>'s just a drink. not that serious. they're crazy. they need a live or something. >> okay. welsh starbucks said there is no scarcity of the seer rupp used to make pumpkin spice.

9:35am
news. time 9:34, 66 degrees at the airport. if you're looking for something to do this weekend, max is here with a review of what's new in movie theaters. but first it starts off as an uncomfortable skin problem but new studies show psoriasis could become a lot more serious. how the disorder is related now to diabetes.
9:36am
9:37am
>> a cold front's coming our way. at that time moment we're on the verge of this cold front. you see the clouds associated with the front. you see some spots of green here and there. mostly just sprinkles. they come and go. the last image there between
9:38am
schaffers town and hagers town. there are a little bit of activity there, a few sprinkles, or a light shower. that's about it. this front is not going to be known for its rain. it's going to be known for its temperature change. humidity 78%, not terribly humid for the early morning chill. 29.85, barometer's falling as the front approaches. southwest wind bringing in those relatively mild temperatures this morning running about six miles an hour. by late afternoon the temperature will be different. let's give you a look at temperatures now. mostly in the 60s to near 70. you see the green changes to blues as you get out west. mchenry 47 now. temperatures beginning to fall. we get a high this afternoon of low 70s around much of the area. maybe mid 70s in a few cases here and there. depends on how thick the clouds are. see how the greens change to blues. as we go into the evening hours
9:39am
and overnight, the blue stuff really comes into the picture. we drop down in most cases down into the 40s for lows. we just don't recover during the day sunday. we'll pick up a few degrees and get up in the low to mid 50s. by monday morning, we're going to see a lot of 30s west of the bay like out at westminster. might even be some frost to the west. yes, the cold air is evading. rain activity much more of it showing up on the radars up in pennsylvania, new york state right now. just a few sprinkles down near the maryland/pennsylvania line. the front is now in allegheny county moving east. that wind shift will occur during the afternoon. then things will start to change. the breeze will pick up a little bit once the front goes through. small craft advisories will go out on the bay. our forecast, 73 to 78 the high. that's pretty optimistic. a shower. it's almost an overstatement. i think more like a sprinkle or
9:40am
nothing. there's a chance with a front coming through. northwest winds about 10 to 20 miles an hour. insta weather future cast shows a much higher chance of rain sunday. disturbance to the south. throws moisture our way. so, the game could be affected by that. it will be chilly during the game with temperatures in the 40s tomorrow evening at camden yards. 40s. monday morning. 38 degrees. on the surface, seeming like completely different medical problems. there could be a liveng and doctors here in the united states are starting to take
9:41am
notice. that red scaley itchy patch is psoriasis. >> it takes a toll on my life. it's very depressing. >> it affects 2% of the population. dr. janet lin say they have a host of other health issues they need to have their eye on, including a new one researchers are just learning about. >> psoriasis is an independent risk factor for heart disease, for stroke, for having obesity, having depression, and now they're even finding that if you have severe psoriasis, you're twice as likely to develop type ii diabetes. there was increased risk, increased with the severity of
9:42am
psoriasis. we think that's due to inflammation in the bloodstream, the psoriasis releases the markers which increases inflammation, leading to insulin resistance and type ii diabetes. >> dr. taylor said although the risk is fairly low, they should be screened. brenda plans on it. >> i am going to start looking into the type ii diabetes. >> i think the main thing that we're learning with all of this information coming out about psoriasis, we should view it not as a skin disease but a systemic disease. it just highlights that primary care doctors and dermatologists need to work together to treat the patient as a whole. >> good morning. thank you for coming. >> thank you. >> we saw that patch on her sken. the first thing i thought was a rash. how do you know it's something more? >> the most important thing is you see your dermatologist.
9:43am
psoriasis can look like pink or red plaque on the skin that's scaley. >> that would be the first step, go to a dermatologist. >> yep. >> from there, what do you do? >> we have to do further evaluations. we know it is associated with arthritis, hypertension, obesity, as well as heart disease and stroke. now a new study is showing there's an independent risk for type ii diabetes. >> when she said it was taking a toll on her life maybe she's experiencing some other problems associated with psoriasis. >> sure. in psoriasis, for that patient, it was a small area that was covered. but really, we see everything from 1% body surface area all the way to 100% covered. it's really debilitating not in terms of symptoms but also in terms of your self-confidence and just being very self-conscious about this. >> with this connection to diabetes and potential connection, one of the things that is a medical problem associated with psoriasis is
9:44am
heart disease. diet, exercise. what el should people be thinking about? >> you should be thinking about seeing your primary care doctor regularly. it's important to not only have a good tight and exercise but you need to have your blood pressure checked, your cholesterol levels, your weight and bmi and of course your blood sugar levels on a regular basis. >> is this genetic? >> in some part it is genetic. >> what's the treatment? >> so the treatments can start from very simple to topical creams and ointments ton skin all the way up to these drugs called biologics. >> is it helpful to know there could be a connection to diabetes. >> not only highlights that it's just a skin disease but affects your entire body. thank you. >> if you have any other questions or would like a referral call 1-800-md-mercy.
9:45am

9:48am
some fun. the director started with a little short film called frankenweenie, about a boy who brings his dead dog back to life. now nearly 30 years later burton's bringing that story to life. the feature film on the big screen. lots of families will surely flock to frankenweenies this weekend. you did not flock? >> i didn't. i just love the idea of tim burton. 30 years ago doing a story about a dead dog. only tim burton. >> instead you did go see taken 2. >> going to be hard to concentrate on these reviews because my orioles last night. that's what i'm talking about. but we'll focus on some reviews. cleansing breath. taken 2 is the kind of sequel that gives sequels a bad name. the first film was a surprise hit in a way.
9:49am
